In our sixth annual sale of Southeast Asian art, The Edge Auction 2018 again focuses on Malaysian works that include significant and major paintings by top names in the local art scene. And we have two paintings by Latiff Mohidin that should find a home among the discerning collectors of Southeast Asian art.

Entitled Rimba series (1997, 86cm by 96cm) and Tao Landscape (Homage to Lao-Tzu) (1999, 91cm by 91cm), the oil on canvas paintings are estimated at RM250,000 to RM300,000 and RM250,000 to RM300,000, respectively.

With Latiff’s ground-breaking solo exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris from Feb 28-May 28 this year, collectors in Malaysia and around the region will surely reassess their own collections and wonder what they have missed out, so far.
